This is a talk Dav Pilkey did to a group of teachers. Dav Pilkey talks about his days in elementary school, he does not have good memories of school. He talks about how he would have been diagnosed ADHD, with an extra dose of H, if they would have had labels back then. He talks about how the teacher had a desk for him in the hallway, he kept it filled with paper and pencils. He would draw comic books and give them to the other students., the teacher would rip them up. He comments that his favorite teacher was his mom. His parents were not critical of him, they were always there for him. This lecture is good and gives students a ray of hope for whatever they are good at.
